Course details

Duration: Dependent on existing qualifications

Code: RTO/ST8

Special note: Candidates should ideally hold a PCN Level 2 approval in MPI as a minimum and have at least 2 years’ experience in NDT/Inspection before attempting the courses. See also the latest edition of PCN/GEN for the minimum requirements for examinations.

Candidates who already hold PCN Level 3 certification in other Basic modules may opt to take the course which deals specifically with magnetic particle test information. Course is for candidates experienced in magnetic particle inspection. Ideal pre-approval course for PCN Level 3 MPI Practioner  examinations covering Basic and Main method.

FROM MAY 2016, PCN LEVEL 3 (BASIC) WILL BE AVAILABLE ONLINE, CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION
